The mind comes from more than the brain, as thought and language are abstractions and approximations or interpretations of experience.
For example, if you are in love with a woman and you look out your front window and see her run over by a truck, your mind will be altered in a way that would be entirely different if you see a cardboard cutout of the woman run over by a truck.
Nothing is different about your brain, but you will find that your thinking, feeling, and perceptions of the world and yourself radically and irrevocably changed for a long, long time.
Don't ask me how I know.
The architecture of those changes will be biochemical/electrical. We can demonstrate this with neuroscience.
